Research is formalised curiosity; it is something one opts to do or not to do. we chose to diligently seek knowledge while pursuing a passion; by taking part in the International Association of Dental Research (IADR) 2017, that focuses on advance research for improvement of oral health worldwide, which took place from the 22nd till the 25th of March in San Francisco, California, USA.

On the 20th of March, staffs and students of our College, set course to San Francisco to attend the general session of the 95th IADR Conference. The participants published their respective papers and posters in the general session, resulting in a tremendous response from the other Universities. The number of posters and papers that were presented by the other Universities were immense and witnessed an active interaction platform. The participants got to interact with international practitioners at the top of their respective fields, which enabled them to gather greater knowledge not only from the field of Dentistry but also from other scientific fields. Dr. James David Raj was awarded with the 2017 IADR Hatton Divisional Award.

Dr. Sameer Bhole, the Clinical Director of Oral health services, SydneyDental Hospital, was in appreciation of the system practiced in Saveetha Dental College. The staffs and students of the college take pride in attending this prestigious conference and obtaining awards for the priceless efforts that had been implied.
